Best Natural Series Easels offer the superior quality the Best brand is known for at prices any artist can afford. Like all Best easels, they are made of solid oak and backed by a lifetime guarantee. However the oak is left unfinished, making these easels a much more economical option for cash-strapped creatives. If you're seeking good features, great stability, and solid craftsmanship on a budget, Best Natural Series Easels can't be beat!

solid, stable easel for a small space
from Portland, OR
Comments about Best Autry A-Frame Easel:
As I was taking this easel (mostly pre assembled, yay) out of its box I was sure I'd be leaving a 5 star review. The unfinished wood is smooth and beautiful to the hand. And it is a really nice easel. I like that it's solid and doesn't wiggle. I love the unfinished and smooth wood. I love that it came preassembled, I love the small footprint is good for my limited space.The draw backs (not enough to make me send it back) but worth considering:.... The first time I attempted to adjust the tray with a painting on it, I realized this was a two hand job and since it sticks and is a pain to adjust, the painting has to be off the easel for adjustments. So, not adjusting easily on the go while in the process of painting. For me, this is a design flaw and this easel's biggest drawback. This easel, I adjust before I begin and let it sit until the next session. ...It tilts back and it's not possible to have the artwork perpendicular to the floor. ...The mast is short and unless you plan to work on the floor, standing up a canvas above 36" would be too low to paint comfortably. I expect this is the trade off with the small footprint and if I need to paint on a larger canvas, I lay it on the floor.All told, a very nice easel that could be hugely improved if the tray adjustment was easier.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Looks like it will do the job
from Devon, PA
I just got this, so I can't say how it will hold up, but it seems to be good quality, and well-made. It's nice solid wood, and light enough to carry around. It folds up well, too.

The easel is easy to assemble (almost no extra work required), is stable, holds even fairly large canvasses with ease and is light enough to be carried around. Great value.

My dream easel
I'm 5' 2", 100 lbs, and I can lift and move this easel about my studio. A great feature for a single woman. It's easily adjustable for both sitting and standing and is very stable. The quality surpassed my expectations. The fittings are well designed, easy to adjust, and of high quality. I love my Autry A-Frame.

Best really is BEST
from North Carolina
This is my 3rd Best easel purchase. I love them all and will happily be an an advocate for this brand because of the high quality and functionality of the products they make. This particular easel is simple to set up, very stable, holds a larger canvas and quickly folds into a nice flat shape to make room in the studio when not in use. All around great easel!
